EU Referendum Statement
It was annouced on Friday 24th June 2016 that the UK will be withdrawing from the European Union. Here at Swansea University we would like to reassure that we are still fully committed to maintaining our development as an international outward-looking institution.
Information for EU students:
At this stage we believe that there will not be any immediate change to immigration status and EU students who are currently in receipt of student loans from Student Finance Wales (SFW), and intend to begin studying from this autumn will continue to receive these loans and grants until they finish their course.
There will be no change to your enrolment process for 2016/17. The University will not need to see your passport and you do not need a visa to study at Swansea University. You will be requested to enrol online as normal.
University tuition fees will continue to be charged in line with UK student rates for the duration of your course. Provided that no unilateral action is taken by the UK government, which is unlikely, undergraduates will continue to be eligible to apply for student finance loans and grants from the UK government.

Information for International Students:
We believe that there will be no change to your enrolment process for 2016/17 and exisiting UKVI legislation still apply. Despite the many unknowns about the outcomes of referendum, we recommend all students coming to study at Swansea in September 2016 to be aware of the current exchange rate as it might be beneficial for them to pay their deposit and/or fees sooner rather than later.
Swansea University has established strong academic and industry links with a number of institutions and companies in Europe and beyond for many years, providing all our students an opportunity to contribute to the world beyond our campuses.
We are an ambitious and adaptable organisation and we will work with our colleagues from other UK universities to ensure that we achieve the best possible outcomes for our students. We understand that you will have concerns or worries but we would like to emphasise that we are committed in continuing to deliver world-class education and provide you with global opportunities.
